Mr. Robert Schwartz
It is that simple really. I am walking because I lost my father to his battle with Parkinson's just under 3 years ago. Though honestly, I lost him before he took his last breath.
I lost the man who raised me when he lost his ability to speak.
I lost the man who raised me when fishing in a stream became unmanageble.
I lost the man who raised me when gardening was no longer one of his favorite things to do.
I lost the man who raised me when dancing to a random song in any location became hard for him to do.
I lost the man who raise me to an ugly disease that forever changed his brain
Therefore, I am participating with my uncle, my aunt and friends in the Moving Day Pittsburgh Walk, to help benef the National Parkinson Foundation Western Pennsylvania Chapter on September 28th, 2013, so that no other child has to say again "I lost my ____ to Parkinson's Disease"
The event will take place at Highmark Stadium and will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. We will be able to enjoy a variety of movement activities yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
I will also be donating a portion of all my Arbonne sales this month to the WPANPF chapter - so if you are buying product from me this month, know the profit is going to fund research and support services for Parkinsons! (contact me if you are open to hosting an event to help!)
